In the summer of 2017, Middle Tennessee State University made its milk available for retail sale for the first time in nearly 50 years.

The MTSU Creamery, which operates in conjunction with the School of Agribusiness and Agriscience, produces delicious milk and allows students to take part in the university’s Experiential Learning and Research Center.

Students work in the center seven days a week, which is based in Lascassas, to ensure quality product reaches MTSU’s milk-processing plant inside Stark Agribusiness Center on campus.

Formerly known as the MTSU Milk Plant, the MTSU Creamery produces high-quality whole white and chocolate milk varieties.

New equipment allows staff and students to fill 10 gallons of milk per minute into bottles, which are then distributed to Phillips Bookstore, Dwight’s Mini Mart in Keathley University Center and Aramark Provisions on Demand stores across campus.

Eventually, MTSU hopes to be able to produce enough milk that the dairy products can be sold in smaller, local stores across the state.

    The fourth grade classes of David Crockett Elementary School in Lawrenceburg, TN are putting together a silent auction basket featuring products manufactured in Tennessee. In our “Pick Tennessee” basket, we hope to include products or promote business from our state. We are reaching out to TN businesses in hopes that you will consider sending samples of your products or promotional items (hats, t-shirts, mugs, etc.) that we can include. We will also include any pamphlets, business cards, or ads you send to advertise Tennessee products. We will need this by November 12, 2018.

    Thank you,
    Lori Green
